Cocktail Hour: White Russian

It's Friday, which means another lovely Cocktail Hour post. Today I'm featuring the White Russian, which is a quintessential 1960's cocktail in it's own right, but often gets upstaged by the martini, the old-fashioned, and other more notably retro drinks. One interesting fact I found in my research is that the White Russian has no Russian origin at all, and is just named that because it uses Vodka. It is a variation of the Black Russian, which I've never sampled...have you? Maybe a Cocktail Hour post for another week!

Got a signature drink that's perfect for a good old fashioned cocktail party? Leave a comment here, and we will feature it next week!
